Pumpkin Apple Coconut Tea Bread

Set backs happen. Solution? Make a quick little tea bread, snap some pictures on your smartphone, and share the recipe.

Remember? Everrryone likes it when treats are being shared.

I know it has been a while since I posted something. Life gets busy, it gets frustrating, and sometimes it is just easier to take a small breather from everything. The best way to get back into things is with a moist treat that is loaded with great ingredients, has no refined sugar, and really should you make you feel good about yourself. Win-win.
